:confused: Nope. The iPhone doesn't have a SIM in it, so it makes a better choice than an iPod Touch where you already have an old iPhone lying around. His iPhone 3GS was retired and he got a 4S...

Ever so slightly judgemental.

The iPad range could do with some improvements (what couldn't) but the screen isn't one of them.

iOS browsers can change their user agent strings too, so that argument doesn't really hold water.

Odeon, Marble Arch. Massive screen, 70mm projection and decent selection of classic films. Oh wait, they knocked it down!

These days, my home. Better picture, better sound, better choice of film. :D

Agree. Just tried to watch this, to find my version (freeview CH4 HD) is also with sign language.

Had to acquire it "via other means" in order to watch unmolested.

Watched this tonight - well half of part 1 anyway.

Very very disappointed as I was very much looking forward to this. Gave up and re-watched the 1990 version, which is stunning. :)
